are people who often base themselves on the wrong-headed view of religion, extreme, narrow-minded and so on. and you see it play out in libya with the tragic death of your ambassador there, it play out in egypt, yemen, syria, iraq. afghanistan, pakistan. this is a battle going on in which i think what we have to do is be there on the side of the modern minded sensible people. it's going to be a very tough struggle in the meantime. >> how much about the way we look at these countries is colored by the last decade of experience in afghanistan and iraq. here in america and great britain, their civilians have been killed in these wars, we don't have the stomach to put our men and women in harm's way. do you think that colors the way president obama views these decisio decisions? >> well, it's always better to have a coalition together. but i think what's happening which is different now in the past couple of years from the previous ten is that we interveinte interve intervened, and so on. this time, it is -- these uprisings are coming from the street. these oppressive regimes are being cast off
. there was no islam is a great religion, none of that today. there was just a statement about how important it is for these new countries feeling their way, led by new men, to get a handle on the violence that threatens the presence of americans in their country. one thing you said that intrigued me, he said we want to stay, we want to help you, we don't want to dictate, we want did work with you, but if you can't protect us we will not be there. the subtle message was, if you want our help, you have to do your part to make sure it is safe if americans to operate. >>shepard: the fact of the matter is, they want our help and our money. this is really not much question about that part of it. they don't want to say that at home. >>guest: that is another thing the president mentioned in the speech, the kind of, on one hand, being very offended by things that are appearing in the press and on television. on the other hand, not doing anything or saying anything about the desecration and destruction of churches in their own countries, about the persecution of christians and other minorities. it wa
. >> reporter: next, affirming america's embrace of all religions. >> we not only respect the freedom of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. >> reporter: then a lesson in tolerance and the freedom of expressi expression. >> like me, the majority of americans are christian and we do not ban blasphemy against our own most sacred believes. i expect people will call me the most awful things every day. and i will always defend their right to do so. >> reporter: seeing an inflexion point after the arab spring, the president called on the world's leaders to champion the same values. >> there is no speech that justifies mindless violence. there are no words that excuse the killing of innocence. there's no video that justifies an attack on an embassy. >> reporter: and president obama resisted campaign season pressure to intensify his rhetoric against iran. instead, he reiterated in stark terms his commitment to diplomacy and consequences if that fails. >> a nuclear armed iran is not a challenge that can be contained.
in many ways is the quintessential american religion. joseph smith saw america as the promise land, as the place where the second coming would happen and it's a religion, basically, based in and vested in the idea of american exceptionalism. on the one hand, that should enable governor romney to talk about america in that way. the other point that he makes that you alluded to earlier, a religion in terms of its existence in america is based on adrsity andrej pice and combatting adversity and that should allow him also to rise to the occasion during presidential campaign. >> it makes it, presumably, a stronger campaigner out there, given the rough and tumble of a political campaign that's under way. you've also uncovered a really intriguing, pretty good picture that we've never seen of mitt romney before. i'll put it up on the screen. i want you to explain what's going on in this picture. >> yes, we think it's from about 69, wolf. it's gernor rney was on his missionary lead in france as a young man and it was when h was still courting then ann davies who was later tome his wife and
. and basically, he makes the case that mormanism is, in fact, the quintessential american religion. mormanism is all about america being the promised land. and jon finds it a little curious that governor romney doesn't talk about that more because in a sense, mormanism is about american exceptionalism. and the fact that governor romney doesn't incorporate that in his whole argument is a curious thing. and the other thing that he says about mormanism is that it's a religion of trial and tribulation and escaping prejudice and being under the gun. and, in fact, that also is animating mitt's campaign because he's kind of trying to sail steady in the face of all of this turbulence. >> it's a perfect -- it's not actually curious at all. there's a very clear reason why he doesn't talk about it. and it reflects the innate caution of their campaign. they've been worried all along about base voters, evangelical voters and not turning out for him. they've been concerned about that from day one. you could criticize that caution. i would criticize that caution, but that's the reason why he doesn't talk ab

more than 200 years, that in order to preserve freedom and liberty, including the freedom of religion, you have to allow people to say and do things that you find abhorrent. and you can't react every time you're insulted. i mean, that's the first thing we all have to teach our children. and i don't mean to compare the people rioting against us in cairo or anywhere else to children. that's not the point. the point is, if you live in a shame-based society where you think nothing good is going to happen, the temptation is to wait for somebody to say something you find offensive, then you can lash out against it. but free people, mandela, absorb destructive things and refuse to be destroyed. yes, americans don't understand all muslim countries as well as we should. but they need to understand us and themselves. you cannot live in a shame-based world. you won't make it in the 21st century. there's too much diversity. there's too much stuff going on on the internet. you've got to be able to say, if you believe in islam, that i believe in a god and a prophet strong enough to withstand the cr
, want an open society. and the other are basing themselves very much on a leftist view of religion and they're in a struggle. >> brian: you say that other group tends to be arm as opposed to the people who are modernized. that's the sad and frustrating part for us. >> the real problem is that you got kind of three elements jostling together in the middle east at the moment. regimes that have been in power a long time. they provided a certain stability, except they don't anymore. the second group are people who i would call your open minded, modern people who believe in pluralistic and open societies. they are badly organized. then you got your radical islams who are numerous and very well organized. unfortunately, therefore, it's going to take a significant amount of time before the second group actually comes through and takes power. >> gretchen: it's interesting because if you looked at the polls three, four weeks ago, most americans didn't care about foreign policy in this election cycle. it's interesting how politics changes on a dime. i mean, now you have this in the forefron
